It’s been a pretty bad year for Mike Shanahan. His team is 3-12, has lost seven games in a row, there’s been talk about him losing his job, there’s been criticism of his son’s work as the offensive coordinator, and his relationship with the team’s owner and quarterback has been scrutinized all year. It really hasn’t been fun being him.
So when Shanny met with the media on Thursday, it was no surprise that he told reporters he got coal for Christmas when asked about what he received.
“I got a lot of people that sent me coal,” he said.
The good news is at least he has maintained a sense of humor. And everyone in attendance sure seemed to appreciate his self-deprecating ways.
The sad thing is, based on the faces he made, it sure doesn’t look like he had a good Christmas. Shanahan is coming across as a guy who won’t truly feel relief until he is finally fired.Google+
